So, I've been a busy girl with work and school and other things. The weather has been so unpredictable. Hopefully it's calmed down a little in NYC, little brother. My roof leaked, and I fixed it (with a very helpful friend). After being covered in roofing tar, probably more than the actual roof itself, I decided - I love working on the house. It was fun to be exhausted from that kind of work, then coming inside and making a yummy dinner.
I made my first contact sheet in the photo lab at school last night. I love photography. I am having such a great time making something out of nothing more than a roll of film and a little light. The best part was watching the image start to appear on the paper. I will post a few images later this week. We are actually printing a few photos tonight in class. Love it!
I found this little personality test that I would love if you would go check it out and post your selections. If I can get a few people to do it, I'll post the results later. It looks interesting...
Well, among all the really sad things going on in the world right now, I hope you are finding peace wherever you are.
Break ups suck. There is nothing fun about that. I am so tired. Tired of this process, tired of being stressed. But you know, I have the house to myself. It is clean. It is set up the way I want it. It is home.
I'm still adjusting to being alone more often. Not to sound pathetic - I have friends. I have a life that seems to grow every day. It's just a change.
I am welcoming change. Welcome. I am recognizing the change in all kinds of ways lately. From the new blossoms to the ways I change.
Today was a hard day. I didn't sleep much last night in anticipation of the day. The moving truck came and went, along with all his things. I'm not sure if I am relieved yet. The glass of wine, then beer with dinner (by candlelight) has taken the edge off a bit. So I am off to bed soon with a good book and my good dogs. Class starts tomorrow evening. it's going to be a fun quarter.
Thomas Dekker: To awaken each morning with a smile brightening my face; to greet the day with reverence for the opportunities it contains; to approach my work with a clean mind; to hold ever before me, even in the doing of little things, the ultimate purpose toward which I am working; to meet men and women with laughter on my lips and love in my heart; to be gentle, kind, and courteous through all the hours; to approach the night with weariness that ever woos sleep and the joy that comes from work well done - this is how I desire to waste wisely my days.
